Atari 1024 and Atari 1040 ST / STF / STE Gotek Bracket and fitting kit. Fits the slanted style drive bay (see photos).
Fitting a gotek usb drive to your Atari can be a little tricky. The standard gotek cases don't fit well, and the Atari's internal wiring is not long enough to connect the USB drive properly so that the case can go back correctly.
kit allows you to fit a Gotek drive to your Atari ST computer with ease
- and looks much better than trying to get a standard gotek case to fit
inside! No modifications to your Atari or Atari ST case are needed.
This product listing is ONLY for the bracket and fitting kit.
- White plastic 3d printed bracket to fit Atari 1024 / 1040 / ST / STF / STE
(Will NOT fit 520STe/SF314 straight style drives or Mega STE).
- Longer jumper wires for LCD display to reach properly
- Internal floppy power lead extension and tie wrap
- Internal floppy data ribbon extension cable
The Gotek usb drive is NOT included. We do sell Gotek USB Floppy Disk Emulator drives separately, please add it to your order if required.
Other photos show how this fits and looks when finished.
When fitting make sure your power extension lead is plugged with the
red wire into 5v (NOT 12v or it will damage your Gotek). Once happy
secure with provided tie-wrap (see photo).
Add the data ribbon cable extension inverted, so there is a twist in
the cable. Gotek drives have their plug the opposite way up to Atari
floppy drives. If when testing the Gotek gives a "rib" error it just
means you need to turn your data ribbon cable plug the other way around.
Depending on your Atari model, you may have to use a sharp knife or
small drill bit to widen one of the bracket fitting holes which has the
supporting "peg" underneath inside your Atari to get a perfect snug fit.
We have made this hole a little small as they can vary and it means you
can get a nice firm fit.
